Interview: Graeme Leak on how he Saved organs from the rubbish tip


Saved is a multi-layered, retro-mechanical music show built around rescued 70s home organs. Turned inside out, their internal spinning speakers are exposed for us to see as well as hear as Leak weaves musical joy into the surprisingly beautiful mundanity of daily life.

Along with cassettes, a turntable, AM radios and a modified whisk, Saved celebrates an analogue era where A-B-C Fun Block and One Finger Chord buttons captivated our imagination.

Written and performed by Graeme Leak
Produced by Scissor Kick

Saved is part of the Made In Scotland 2021 programme, and will be available online between 8 and 28 August from Zoo TV during this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

You can book tickets to watch at any time during the festival via the below link.

Listen back to our interview with Graeme Leak, which was first broadcast on Runn Radio on 21 July. Graeme talks about the show, his collection of instruments and why he can never see any insturments go to the scrap heap.

About Everything Theatre

Founded in 2011, Everything Theatre started life as a pokey blog run by two theatre enthusiasts and – thanks to the Entry Pass Scheme for 16-25 year olds – regular National Theatre goers. Today, we are run by part-time volunteers from a wide array of backgrounds. Among our various contributors are people who work in theatre, but also people who work in law, medicine, events, marketing and even psychiatry! We are all united by our love for the London theatre scene.
